Vibrations are one of the biggest problems in astronomical instrumentation. Even after carefully designing an adaptive optics system, it remains a major contribution to the residual error. ARGOS is the facility GLAO system for the LBT. It has a dedicated vibration compensation system to stabilize the laser guide stars, which allows operation in windy conditions. We give an overview of the setup and discuss its performance and impact on the reliability of ARGOS.
